Well it wont put me on top of the list but will get me on it and let the contenders know that I am out here and working it every morning. Had to take a selfie and was hard to do with this big gal. That is a 4ft cutting board.

Nothing like last year, but I'll play





I gotta add this. I was fortunate enough last year to come away from this contest with the RTS setters. My 11 year old can set a 330 with them no problem, nice product. Thanks to Trapset for the donation and the quality product.

All three of ours were caster mounds guarded with snares. Rebar stakes with #9 wire supports and coil whammys.
We just used loaded 1/19 5/64" fast snares.

Hey Thanks everyone, Guess it's just luck of the draw between snares and 330's.And yeah the boss man's special sauce defiantly does magic to a set. Great Beaver guy's and thanks for sharing.

How about the longest tail contest? I got a 70 pounder with a 7.5 wide by 15.5 long. Not bad for a southern beav. Sarge

Nice job Sarge! After seeing several pics of Southern beaver...I agree they have longer tails compared to most Northern beaver. Doug from Georgia has posted a lot of quality pics and it became clear...different genetics possibly?

Last year I had a lot of fun with this, and was looking at new entries and generally enjoying it. Mostly because I was actually catching beaver during the contest. I don't do much under the ice since ice has not been very reliable the last decade or so, but it is looking like hard water could last into March this year so I am just shut down until open water. If you are about to call me a wimp, or say I just don't want to gear up and start sawing ice, you would be right about that, so take my comments lightheartedly.

Don't get me wrong, I am still looking at the results once in a while, and I appreciate the effort and certainly don't lose any sleep over it, but I would humbly add my voice to any who might suggest that the contest last until the northern states' spring seasons end. Just gives more opportunities for us all to join in and have some fun and promote beaver trapping in general.

With all of that said, thanks for doing it! Im just selfish and was hoping I might have a chance to join the contest this year.

Nice job all! Sure are some big tails out there. Must be all in the genetics.

I've not seen a tail that made it 7.5 inches here, and that's including multiple 65 lb. plus beavers.

Updated Standings, very strong entries fellas. Keep slogging it out, 16 days left. In the spirit of the Olympics - come on boys - a Canadian has us beat by 1/4 inch.




Trapperalex - send me a pm, would like to get you entered but can't see your pics

SGT. C - nice work! can you post a picture for the entry please?

I thought about longest but it's that much harder to get a pic w/ only 2 hands and the whole thing in the frame. Then there's the finicky hair line issue, just easiest and simplest for everyone going width. I didn't want it to turn into a - he measured from the wrong spot thread.
